Hotel is within a couple mins walk to Disney Springs via a skywalk across the road. Also close to area outlet mall and other shopping. Excellent location. Pool area is large and well taken care of with plenty of chairs and a pool bar with snack items. Staff were great.
Only couple things negative i found was that the rooms are not real quiet, at least not in the section i was in. If there are kids next door you will hear them. Also if you're in the front facing rooms there is a lot if traffic noise and sounds of trucks and busses backing up early in the morning. Not a huge deal though if you're up and in the go early anyway.
The other thing i wasnt too fond of, but im sure is common at a lot of area hotels and resorts, is that parking is an additional $15 US a day, whether you use valet parking or not. That adds up over a week or two. We stayed at a couple other resorts in Disney and parking was totally free....so just keep that in mind when looking at prices. They have a large parking area so there's really no reason to charge that much to guests for parking.
